Ratings and Reviews
Great companion app - vid of Jack's hole-in-1 is cool
Nicely done free app -- thanks Jack and Royal Bank of Scotland!
The hole by hole course overviews by The Golden Bear are short and to the point. Cool "finger slide" feature allows a dynamic view of each hole and let's you "see the next shot" as the Pros do if you're following along.
The "19th hole" video spots were a particularly nice touch. I especially liked Jack's description of his last Hole-in-1 in competition during the Sr. Open played at Congressional. His strong feelings about what the US Open Championship means to him were retesting to hear.
The app, particularly the videos, look great on my iPhone, but they really pop on my iPad. Recommend downloading while connected to WiFi due to the HD video.
A nicely executed, useful App devoid of the filler typically found in free downloads.
Great perspective, stories and guide to Congressional and the US Open. Love the 19th Hole videos, especially Jack's hole in one on the 7th. Feels like everyone playing the course should check this out, especially the pros!
Took a while to download, but well worth the wait! I've never seen a free program with this much good content from such a major figure.
